    Recently there was a rumor posted up about the Marth, Villager and WiiFit Trainer amiibos already being discontinued causing a price hike at UK GAME stores from £11.99 to £14.99, with amazon UK increasing some models to £39.99!

    I bought Villager as it was on discount (10 euros vs. the regular 16 euros). That's my first and probably only amiibo until they show more games with amiibo support. They're kinda useless, although they make for good opponents (especially when trained to level 50) vs. level 9 CPU players in Smash Bros...

    i bought donkey Kong, Mario, samus and yoshi at once in order to unlock all Mario kart 8 suits time after time. I'll also definitely buy bowser though he has no racing suit, just because he is my most favorite character and simply awesome.

    If I am going to buy pointless junk it will be pointless junk that might have some hypothetical use.

    I've never bought any physical DLC like a Disney Infinity or a Skylanders toys. At the moment there are no vital amiibo usage for me, so my answer is no.

    Honestly think the majority of GBATemp members are buying them as collectors items not for game use

    Well ask this how many figures are we really going to get of Pit,marth or fox? Not a lot as they rarely have gotten figurines at least compared to Mario and Pokemon.

    On the image above it looks like Link now sits on a transparent smaller stick instead of the large yellow one?

    Problem is, once you open the packages they're completely ruined and you can't use the Amiibo within the box unless you make a whole on the bottom of it.

    I might get it in a complete batch but couldn't careless for singles.

    I saw them in real life which were, Peach, Mario and Metroid Samus all looked pretty good although the images online beg to differ.

    But almighty God, what the fuck did Nintendo do to Zelda Link and Marth. :O
